El Centro splits the difference between higher-end sit-down and nondescript takeaway joint. The cozy, brightly colored space lets you indulge in eavesdropping and a few well-made margaritas, but the food is straightforward and crowd-pleasing: freshly made guac (topped with chorizo if you so desire), chimichangas, chicken mole and no less than 10 different tacos (fish, chicken, steak, carne asada).
